January Moon and Tonga Pressure Wave

While we slept last night my new weathercam captured the 98% full moon setting as clouds streamed above out of the southwest.

For anyone interested in the hardware/software setup for this:

Camera: Uniview 5MP Bullet, Colorhunter

Weather Station: Ambient WS-5000

Software: IPTimelapse Pro

In other weather station news, weather pros and amateurs alike have posted their captures of the pressure wave that was generated by the Tonga volcano event. The first wave, which arrived January 15th a few hours after the explosion, traveled northeasterly across the US and was visible on my station’s barometer. The second wave arrived more than 24 hours later. It had traveled the long way around the globe and moved southeasterly. My barometric graph plainly shows it around 1 AM on January 16th.
